Joe Bruno on the Mob – Renee Graziano and Rat Ex- Husband Hector Pagan Back Together
January 17, 2012
Real life is stranger than fiction.
This is a classic love story. Girl meets boy. Girl marries boy. Boy cheats on girl. Boy and girl get divorced. Boy wears a wire while talking to girl’s father. Girl’s father goes back to jail.
Boy and girl get back together. Live happily ever after.
You gotta be kidding me!!!
Renee Graziano, co-star of the ridiculously bad reality TV show “Mob Wives,” is back with her ex-hubby Hector Pagan. This is after it became big news that Pagan was wearing a wire when he recently spoke with Graziano’s father, reputed Bonanno crime family capo Anthony Graziano. On this wire, Graziano Sr. was allegedly heard telling Pagan to collect on a long-overdue usurious loan. If this wasn’t bad enough for Graziano Sr., he was on the last leg of an eight-year prison term (home detention), and subsequently, because of the tape, Graziano Sr. was sent back to jail. (He did not pass “Go” and he did not collect the customary $200.)
The original reason why Renee Graziano broke up with Pagan was because he was a cheating fool with other woman. On a January episode of “Mafia Wives,” Renee Graziano and Pagan were featured explaining their past problems.
“You went into prison at 18 years old. You came home at 22. We were married two years later. We were kids,” Renee told Pagan. “We got off to a very rocky start right from the beginning. We didn’t have the most successful marriage.”
Pagan cooed back, “Listen, I made mistakes, tons of them. So did you. But I did the most damage.”
“You’ve never admitted any of this ever,” Renee said. “It’s 22 years I’ve been waiting for this. I’ve been in therapy for this for 22 years. I’ve been waiting for you to just acknowledge that it hurt. That was it.”
“I didn’t know it was hurting,” Pagan said. “I didn’t know what I was doing. I think with life’s experience now, we can make it that much better. I’m having a good time. We are talking without fighting.”
Renee, with tears in her eyes said, “I’ve been waiting for this for years. For years I’ve been in love with you, only you.”
“We are exclusive,” Junior said.
Then while the show was airing, Renee Graziano tweeted, “I have so much love in my heart 4 my sons father that it hurts @ times.”
This is the cue for all you readers to puke.
Since Renee Graziano has co-starred in “Mob Wives” (with four other gaudy guidettes), which is produced by her sister Jennifer Graziano, Graziano Sr. has not spoken to either of his daughters. Nevertheless, it boggles the mind how Renee Graziano could ever go back to the man who just put her father back in prison.
Real life is stranger than fiction.
This is what I previously wrote about the Pagan/Graziano situation:
Joe Bruno on the Mob – Ex-Son-in-Law Rats on Anthony Graziano
If VHI wants to run another show to complement “Mob Wives” named “Rat Ex-Husbands of MMob afia Wives,” Hector “Junior” Pagan would undoubtedly be the star.
In a shocking development, Pagan, who was married to “Mob Wives” co-star Renee Graziano, and was a constant presence on the show last season, has joined Team America, and the first person he ratted on was his ex-father-in-law, reputed Bonanno crime family capo Anthony Graziano.
According to published reports on Jerry Capeci’s “Gangland” website (ganglandnews.com), Pagan was looking at big time in prison for the armed robbery of a high-stakes poker game. Instead of doing his time like a man, Pagan agreed to wear a wire while talking to Graziano, while Graziano was finishing up the last stage an eight-year prison bit in home detention. On this wire, Graziano allegedly instructed Pagan to collect $25,000 to smooth over a long-stand loansharking debt of $150,000.
Since “Mob Wives” is advertised as a “Reality Show,” the news of her rat ex-brother-in-law didn’t seem to faze the show’s creator Jennifer Graziano, who is, amazingly enough, another daughter of Anthony Graziano. Ms. Graziano said, “It is a reality show, and I knew this was going to be personal to me going into this. But I didn’t know this was going to happen. We’re making a reality show, and this is the reality of what’s going on.”
It sure is.
Since the show started last season, Anthony Graziano, because he didn’t like them airing out their dirty laundry in public, has refused to talk to either of his daughters. In light of recent developments, it’s a safe bet Anthony Graziano now wishes he hadn’t talked to his ex-son-in-law either.
You can see the articles below at:
Renee Graziano is back with Hector Pagan ex-husband Hector Pagan Jr. (a.k.a. Junior) and the father of her son AJ (Anthony John). Hector Pagan Jr.
Last year Junior Pagan was rounded up in a major mob bust, leaving Renee devastated. She briefly got back with her ex-husband, but left him after she found out he was seeing other women.
On tonight’s episode Junior wanted to spend time with Renee in the six months he had while he wanted for his sentencing for the last bust. He told Renee that her brush with death during her plastic surgery nightmare scared him because he didn’t want to lose her. When she asked if he didn’t want to lose her because he was still in love with her, or because he loved her, he replied “both,” which made her break down. Renee replied “I’ve been waiting for this for year. For years I’ve been in love with you, only you.”
She asked him to completely forget all the other girls.
We’re not sure if they’re still together, as this episode was taped several months ago, but Renee tweeted while watching the episode: “I have so much love in my heart 4 my sons father that it hurts @ times.” That’s so sweet! Sounds like Renee and Junior have a very strong bond that won’t ever be broken.
This December we actually learned that Pagan was an FBI informant this year for Renee’s dad Anthony Graziano. Junior was reportedly wearing a wire for a year. That’s bound to create more trouble in the family. Anthony Graziano wasn’t speaking to his daughters Renee and Jennifer (Mob Wives producer) because of the Mob Wives show.
Renee has made it very clear that she doesn’t want her son A.J. to follow in the footsteps of his father and grandfather. She wants him to go to college and make an honest life. Hopefully, with his parents happy, and his father cutting his mob ties, he’ll be able to fulfill his mother’s dream.
Junior Pagan, Mob Wives, Renee Graziano
Renee finally gets the apology that she’s always wanted from Junior. Watch.
At the end of Jan. 8 episode of Mob Wives, Renee Graziano had a serious talk with her ex-husband Junior Pagan — and they decided to try and get back together. During the upcoming Jan. 15 episode, Junior takes Renee to a nice dinner so that they can spend some time talking. But during this emotional dinner, Junior finally admits that he is the reason their marriage fell apart.
“You went into prison at 18 years old. You came home at 22. We were married two years later. We were kids,” Renee tells Junior in a preview video. “We got off to a very rocky start right from the beginning. We didn’t have the most successful marriage.”
Junior at first tries to blame Renee. “That’s because you like to control people,” he says. “That’s why we had issues.”
“No Junior,” Renee interrupts him. “We didn’t have a successful marriage because you were having affairs.”
Renee explains the story to the camera. “Junior’s cheating started before we even got married,” she reveals. “He kept on cheating. He kept blaming me. Bottom line was the liqueur, the strip bars, his jerk off friends, that’s what happened. That’s why he cheated.”
Junior realizes that Renee is right and does his best to attempt an apology. “Listen, I made mistakes, tons of them,” he confesses. “So did you. [But] I did the most damage.”
“You’ve never admitted any of this ever,” Renee cries. “It’s 22 years I’ve been waiting for this. I’ve been in therapy for this for 22 years. I’ve been waiting for you to just acknowledge that it hurt. That was it.”
Junior seems truly sorry for his past. “I didn’t know it was hurting,” he returns. “I didn’t know what I was doing.”
“I think with life’s experience now, [we] can make it that much better,” he continues. “I’m having a good time. We are talking without fighting,”
Renee agrees to try.
“We are exclusive,” Junior smiles.
